Recommendations for a NextCloud host? It will just be me and one other person using it at first, and unlikely to scale to more than 10 people.

There's a list of providers here: nextcloud.com/providers/

(I know and trust Web Architects - who else is good and based in the EU?)

This writeup of my keynote on BoingBoing is more eloquent and concise than the talk. Thanks to Cory for the awesome summary, reflections, and signal boost! boingboing.net/2018/06/21/digi

I'm really enjoying the microcasts by @dajbelshaw ...even if the microcasts are pulling me away from my Linux From Scratch project. ๐Ÿ˜€

I highly recommend subscribing to Doug's weekly email summary of his blog, Thought Shrapnel, if you're in the learning profession.

I'm opting out our family from this bollocks, given that the NHS has already been sharing patient information with Google Deepmind, etc.

Augur, an attempt to build a decentralized prediction market on Ethereum launches on July 9th. For me, if it works, it will be one of the last pieces of the 90s Cypherpunk gameplan to go live โ€” and thatโ€™s pretty scary, because this is the one that *even people in that community* conceded might be too much power to give to everyone in the world, willy-nilly.

Mastodon! What's your favourite newsletter format? Why?

Feel free to mention specific newsletters, but I'm more interested if for example, you prefer:

1. Short, text-only, bullet-piunts with to-the point links.

2. Lots of images to scroll through to make it a beautiful experience.

3. Something else?

(I have my suspicions about what this crowd will like, but we'll see)

@neil Not claiming we're "exemplar", but we did a fair number of design docs in #Mailpile, especially early in the project when we were exploring the problem space.

Our security roadmap is probably our most important / best such document: github.com/mailpile/Mailpile/w

The Mastodon bridge tool has got a facelift! bridge.joinmastodon.org/

You can sign in with Twitter and Mastodon to find Twitter friends in the fediverse. You can also send it to your Twitter friends, as it will show them their friends on Mastodon and point them to where they could make an account!

Hey all, I need some help rethinking community calls for projects.

At Moodle, as we did at Mozilla, I've been using a public Etherpad for people to:
- Sign in
- Introduce themselves
- Contribute ideas to the project

We're also using Zoom to:
- Discuss things via video and audio
- Record the call for later viewing

After a conversation with our data privacy lead today, I've got to delete the existing data we've captured in this way, and come up with a new approach.

Any ideas? ๐Ÿ™ƒ
